Ideal Logic Max C30 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Ideal Logic Max C30 - a regular, combi or system boiler?

Suitable for a house or a flat, the Ideal Logic Max C30 combi boiler is worth considering if you want a combi boiler.

Traditional boilers need one or more large tanks to work - one to heat and keep water warm for immediate use and the other to store water intended for heating later. Finding space for these large tanks is difficult in British residential property - remember that our houses and flats are among the smallest in the world. This is the problem that combi boilers were designed to solve when they were introduced in the 1970s.

Combi boilers don't need a tank - instead, they instantly heat water drawn from the mains using technology inside the boiler. This hot water is then distributed immediately to your taps or radiators on demand.

The biggest disadvantage to combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity for heating water, meaning that they work best when only one point within a household wants hot water. For example, if someone is taking a shower and another person uses a hot water tap at the same time, the water pressure, volume and temperature to both points drops.

Is the Ideal Logic Max C30 combi boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

You should make sure that the boiler you choose for your property is the right "size". And size doesn't mean its physical dimensions. Size means how much power it has - the "output".

A boiler's output level measures how much power it can use to provide you with the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. If a boiler has a high output rate, it can heat greater volumes of water.

If you choose a boiler with too low an output, you'll find that the water coming out of your taps and in your radiators won't be as hot as you want it to be. Choosing one whose output is too high means you'll pay more than you need to for the gas your boiler needs to work.

The Ideal Logic Max C30 combi outputs at a maximum of 30.3 kW, so which types of property would this Ideal Logic Max C30 Combi boiler be appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe boiler installers would likely recommend that, at this level of output, this Ideal Logic Max C30 Combi boiler would be a suitable choice for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

In addition to the output rate, you should consider a boiler's "flow rate" (measured in litres per minute) when choosing a combi boiler.

If you have a lot of radiators and bathrooms in your home and members of your household want to use hot water at the same time (like morning or evening showers and baths), you'll need a boiler with a high flow rate. This Ideal Logic Max C30 Combi boiler's flow rate is 12 L/m.

However, it's not that simple. Combis can only draw water from the mains at the speed it's delivered. Homes with higher than average demand for hot water, and particularly those in low mains pressure areas, may find that a combi boiler is not the right answer for them.

When our engineer comes out to quote you, they may recommend that you choose a heat only boiler or system boiler instead to better serve you and your family.


Where will the Ideal Logic Max C30 fit in my house?

The Ideal Logic Max C30 is 700 mm high by 395 mm wide by 278 mm deep.

Is the Ideal Logic Max C30 a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

The Ideal Logic Max C30 is a condensing gas boiler - in fact, we recommend that you select this model or one of the latest condensing boilers on the market as the technology continues to improve over time.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created when the gas is burned and they recycle this back into the heating system to warm up the cold water re-entering the boiler from your radiators.

They're much more environmentally friendly and installing one results in much lower annual gas bills.

Is the Ideal Logic Max C30 combi boiler good for the environment?

How we heat our homes and the damage we might be doing to the environment as a result has become an important point of concern to many homeowners worried about climate change.

Around 14% of the greenhouse gases produced in the UK is a result of our central heating systems. Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in some of our largest cities.

Would choosing the Ideal Logic Max C30 combi be an environmentally-friendly choice? If so, let's look at its performance figures.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK are assigned two energy efficiency ratings. By law, they must achieve a SEDBUK "A" rating subject to a minimum efficiency level of 92%. Prior to that, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" grade and 90% and above an "A" grade).

The ratings awarded to the Ideal Logic Max C30 are 94% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive grades products according to the energy they consume and the harmful gas emissions they create, from manufacturing right through to final disposal, including how they're used by customers between these two points.

The Ideal Logic Max C30 is rated "A" for heat and "A" for water.

How long is the warranty offered by the manufacturer for the Ideal Logic Max C30 boiler?

The parts and labour warranty on the Ideal Logic Max C30 lasts for 10 years.

Ideal Logic Max C30 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Ideal Logic Max C30 - a regular boiler, combi boiler or system boiler?

The Ideal Logic Max C30 boiler is an option you may wish to consider if you're looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat.

In many properties, combi boilers are more suitable than traditional types of boiler. Combi boilers heat water instantly on demand, which they draw directly from the mains supply, removing the need for storage tanks that can take up valuable space in your home.

A combi boiler is often the right choice for a smaller property, particularly if your home doesn't have a useable loft. As water is heated and delivered immediately rather than being kept warm for hours in an immersion tank, combi boilers reduce gas usage, thereby minimising your heating costs.

The main disadvantage of combi boilers is that they can only heat a certain amount of water at any one time. This means that, if two people are using different taps or showers within your home at the same time, the flow of heated water to each will be reduced, as will the water pressure and temperature.

Is the Ideal Logic Max C30 combi boiler from the Logic Max range a suitable choice for my house or flat?

Whether this Ideal Logic Max C30 Combi boiler is right for your property depends on its size or what its "output" level is. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

The output rating indicates how much energy a boiler can use in providing you with hot water and heat when you need it from your radiators and taps. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

It's better to take advice on this from a registered installer because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators might not get as hot as you would like them to be. However, if the output level is too high, you'll end up paying more on your gas bills than you need to.

Which types of property would this Ideal Logic Max C30 Combi boiler be appropriate for given its output of 30.3 kW?

An experienced boiler engineer would recommend that this Ideal Logic Max C30 Combi boiler would provide adequate heating and hot water for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with up to 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

In addition to output rates, you need to consider a combi boiler's flow rate when making your choice.

The flow rate of your boiler dictates the maximum volume of water (measured in litres per minute) that it can heat and distribute to your taps, showers and radiators at any one time.

However, a combi boiler like the Ideal Logic Max C30 can only heat and deliver water at the rate at which it actually enters your property. For this reason, you should also find out what the mains pressure to your house is before purchasing a boiler.

It's pointless spending more money on a boiler with a 17l/m flow rate if the local water pressure is 11l/m. To give you an indication of average water demand, a power shower typically requires 12 litres of water per minute and a basin tap 4-8 litres. This Ideal Logic Max C30 Combi boiler's flow rate is 12 L/m.

When our engineer comes out to quote you, they may recommend that you choose a heat only boiler or system boiler instead if your family's demand for hot water is higher than normal.


What size is a Ideal Logic Max C30 boiler?

The Ideal Logic Max C30 stands at 700 mm tall, 395 mm wide and 278 mm deep.

Is the Ideal Logic Max C30 non-condensing or condensing?

The Ideal Logic Max C30 is a condensing gas boiler - this is the type of boiler we recommend to most clients because they're better for the environment and they will save money on annual fuel bills.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth still present in both the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created when gas is burned to provide your boiler with power.

This means it needs less gas to operate and it uses this extra energy to perform a number of tasks, including heating the colder water that comes back to the boiler from the radiators in your home.

Is the combi Ideal Logic Max C30 boiler energy efficient?

Many homeowners are now worried about climate change and the damage they do to the environment from heating their homes has become a subject of increasing concern.

14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production comes from central heating. In the bigger cities, gas boilers in particular are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Do the figures suggest that installing the Ideal Logic Max C30 combi at your property would help in the fight against climate change?

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must achieve an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% (an "A" SEDBUK grade). This is higher than the previous 88%, which was a legal requirement prior to April 2018.

The energy efficiency rating is used to work out how much energy a boiler both uses and wastes when it's switched on and working correctly - its standard functioning and operation.

The Ideal Logic Max C30 is rated as 94% energy efficient, equivalent to a "A" SEDBUK rating.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) is European legislation that applies to all products which use or consume energy during their lifespan, including during the manufacturing process and when they're in actual use, right through to the point of final disposal.

The aim is to encourage manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and create fewer harmful gas emissions.

The Ideal Logic Max C30 has an ERP Heat rating of "A" and an ERP Water rating of "A".

Is there a warranty on the Ideal Logic Max C30 combi boiler if it breaks down?

Parts and labour charges incurred during a repair on the Ideal Ideal Logic Max C30 boiler are covered by a 10 year warranty.
